An Atlanta homecoming for Julia Roberts

Smyrna native Julia Roberts is in Atlanta filming "Mother's Day," and took some time out for a nice family get-together.

We're told she and several relatives (plus a bodyguard nearby) had a Sunday supper at Davio's, sharing the restaurant's signature warm chocolate cake for dessert afterward.
